    January 28, 2015 - Big, juicy, rich and dark. A little hot on the finish. Drinking well today but will definitely improve over the next few years...

    January 25, 2015 - Decanted several hours. Dark Crimson, silky soft tannins, dark fruit, smoke, spice, forest floor. Nice weight and balance. Overall very good.

    January 18, 2015 - Cabs at Cooking School (Maybach, Ghost Horse +++) (Loretta Paganini School fo Cooking): I thought Charlie said he was bringing the 30th anniversary bottling, but I didn't see any indication on the label. Purple/ruby in color. The nose has cassis and some pencil lead. A bit of dust. Medium bodied. Nice wine, not over done. Nice cassis fruit with slight tannins. Worked well with food. Seemed ready to go now.

    September 13, 2014 - Wished I had waited another year or two... but no regrets! Deep blue mountain fruit, grip, structure, and solid finish. Definitely more of a food cab as it was at it's best with a dry aged NY Strip and a touch of blue cheese. Started at 90, but finished higher after an hour in the glass. Meant to keep some til the next day : ) .

    September 11, 2014 - $40? Come on. This is great juice. Sweet, thick, full - starting to throw 2ndary stuff - chalk, cigar - but super juicy. Full, centered mid pallet. Was a pnp but should have decanted. In the glass it opened up after about 2 hours. Fantastic.
